Description

Deepest night, Montana. An eerie light proclaims the arrival of a mysterious watcher in the woods. And one solitary man begins a desperate battle against something unknown-and unknowable.

Broad daylight, Los Angeles. An ordinary morning erupts in cataclysmic violence. A young family is shattered in a heartbeat. Fate will lead this family to an isolated Montana ranch, but their sanctuary will become their worst nightmare. For there they will face a chillingly ruthless enemy, from which no one-living or dead-is safe.

    This book was "meh". The beginning was pretty good but the ending just dragged on. The climax seemed to last forever. Good plot though. Characters ok. More cops from Mr. Koontz as usual. Good for a casual read.

    I love Dean Koontz's books because you just never know what his rich imagination is going to come up with...but whatever it is it's always a huge surprise. This is one of the scariest books that he's written in all of the years I have had the pleasure of reading his works. Usually there is a suspenseful story with some horror moments thrown in....this one has a dark undertone with both gory and psychological horror from the start to finish. The book is actually two stories in parallel... Jack McGarvey, a cop, and his family in Los Angeles, and Eduardo Fernandez...Jack's deceased partner's father who lives on a ranch in Montana. Sometimes these two part stories clash and go off in different directions but Dean Koontz has managed to bring them together clean and neatly into an explosive ending. Anyone that is a fan of horror and the supernatural will want to make friends with not only this book... but the rest of this author's offerings.

    Great storytelling as an LA cop moves his family to an unexpected inheritance, a house deep in the woods, but one besieged by a mysterious enemy. Marked, as usual, by Koontz's great writing, pacing, and an ability to come up with a story unlike his previous work.

    I believe the man can write not a bad story!!!
  • (1/5)
    Weak story of Aliens (in the form of Octopi) with telepathic powers who occupy the Montana ranch of a newly moved in family (Dad, Mom, son) from LA. Aspects of the "Shining" though this is a much inferior work.

    I listened to the audio book of Winter Moon. I have been a Dean Koontz fan for many, many years. Winter moon is easily my least favorite Koontz book. I love the premise of the story and the climax, once we got there, was fantastic. But getting there took way too long. The book moved very slowly. I felt way too much attention was spent on everyday menial tasks, which is quite boring to read about, or listen to in this case.The book started out strong. Jack is a police officer in Los Angeles. The very first chapter starts with him and his partner getting into a shootout. From there, we go to Quartermass Ranch in Montana where we meet Eduardo. Eventually, Jack moves with his wife and son to Montana and live at Quartermass Ranch, which is when things start to get strange and the story starts to pick up. However, this is about three-quarters of the way into the book already. I had considered more than once to stop listening and put the book aside, but because I am such a huge fan of Koontz I kept expecting it to get better. I guess they can't all be winners. I won't hold this against him. Still a huge fan, and looking forward to reading more! 
  • (5/5)
    much darker Koontz than many of his others, but one of the best. It was spooky suspense, but not horror.
  • (4/5)
    Excellent story. About a cop that gets wounded in L.A. and moves to Montana. Big theme is about how cities have gone to hell.
  • (3/5)
    Jack Mcgarvey and his family find themselves confronted with a dark shadowy monster alien from space. They become posed by it as it tries to take over their bodies. In the end they return to their home in LA from the Montana farm they have inherited.

    Sooner or later, I'll learn not to pick up a Dean Koontz novel unless I'm committed to read straight through it in my lazy, slow way. This tale of people you would like to get to know could have been stretched out to 600 or 700 pages, and would be by some other writer, but Koontz manages to make you live in the novel's world and see EVERYTHING, especially the dark force monster. I kind of wanted to see the dark force monster win, though, the kid survive, and another book build on that.
